Charity shops more important for society than ever following Covid-19

first_img Almost a third of people, 29%, think charity shops are more important than ever following the Covid-19 crisis, research conducted for British Heart Foundation has found.Censuswide questioned over 2000 consumers in June and also found out that of those who think charity shops have become more important, almost three quarters (71%) say it is because charity shops provide affordable items to those with financial concerns, while 68% say it is because they raise funds for charitable causes at a time many of these causes are in high demand.In addition, over half (55%) say charity shops are vital because they prevent items from being thrown away, and 42% say they provide jobs and volunteering opportunities in community at a time the UK is facing recession. 40% also think that being sustainable and thinking about the environment when they shop is more important than before the pandemic.Younger people in particular say they are more likely to use charity shops after the pandemic than before, at almost a fifth (19%) of respondents aged 25-34 compared to 6% of those aged 55+.The same proportion of respondents aged 16-24 also strongly agree that being sustainable and thinking about the environment when they shop is more important than before the pandemic.Allison Swaine-Hughes, BHF Retail Director, said:“This pandemic has been devastating for so many of us and the reopening of charity shops is going to be vital for millions as we look to recover. Charity shops provide high quality items at affordable prices, power charitable services that have never been more in demand, reuse thousands of tonnes of items and provide a community space for so many volunteers and customers.”“Every pound raised in our shops helps us to support the 7.4 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases, many of whom are at increased risk from Covid-19. Shopping at the BHF will help us, help them.” Charity shops more important for society than ever following Covid-19 Tagged with: charity retail research Advertisement Melanie May | 10 August 2020 | News  737 total views,  2 views today  738 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The first day in revolutionary Cuba

first_imgOct. 2 — The first full day of the 2017 “In the Footsteps of Che Guevara International Brigade” began with more than 250 delegates from 21 countries enjoying a well-prepared breakfast in the dining hall of the Julio Antonio Mella International Camp near Caimito, Cuba. As the morning progressed, many of the delegates slowly drifted away from the dining hall to explore the surrounding scenery of the camp before the start of the day’s activities.In the first item on our agenda, we marched to the monument of Julio Antonio Mella, a young revolutionary killed by the Batista dictatorship, for whom the camp is named. Upon our arrival at the site, a floral wreath was laid at the monument, and touching words were spoken by a Pioneer elementary school student in memory of Mella and the legacy he left behind.Delegations from around the world held banners, signs and flags to show their solidarity with the Cuban people. Banners from the Chicago, Albany, N.Y., and Washington, D.C., Cuba Coalitions in the U.S., and stunning banners from Chile and Greece, were joined by two handpainted Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero banners. Both had portraits of Che Guevara and the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.The bilingual banner demanded “End the U.S. Blockade of Cuba/Fin al Bloqueo Contra Cuba.” The other echoed Cuba’s internationalism by opposing the U.S. war against Venezuela, Syria, Iran and the DPRK as well as demanding an end to the economic war on Cuba. A delegation of Puerto Ricans held a banner calling for an end to PROMESA, the bankers’ colonial financial control board, designed to squeeze the last cent out of the island’s working class.Walking where Che walkedAs we returned to the camp, the air was filled with enthusiastic cheers,  “Viva Cuba! Viva Che! Viva Fidel! Viva Mella!”Following the brief ceremony, the brigadistas congregated in the camp’s theater to watch a beautiful slideshow about Che Guevara.The song “Che Comandante” was the background music, and overwhelmed by emotion, everyone began to sing along, echoing the happiness felt in our hearts for the legendary man who fearlessly helped lead the Cuban Revolution.We were greeted by Fernando Gonzalez Llort, the president of Cuba’s Institute of Friendship. One of the legandary Cuban Five, Gonzalez Llort was imprisoned in the U.S. for over 15 years for defending his country against a right-wing overthrow. We also listened to inspiring stories from four of Comandante Che’s former associates.The day ended with a hearty dinner of rice, beans, chicken and ox-tail, followed by more music, singing and dancing at the Noche Cubana as we became acquainted with representatives of the global movement in solidarity with socialist Cuba. Indeed, a beautiful ending to a beautiful first day, a beautiful beginning to the brigade’s visit. For the next two weeks we lived, worked and traveled together, walking where Che walked.Adapted from a talk given Nov. 11 at a Workers World Party forum in New York City.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img
